Hasegawa
Adhesive Detail & Marking Sheet White

Reviewed by Sean Hert

Hasegawa's Adhesive Detail & Marking Film sheets make trimming plastic models a snap! Specifically designed for modeling use, each sheet has an adhesive back and comes individually packaged. Available in four colors and one hologram clear, sheets measure 3.54 x 7.87 (90mm x 200mm). Modelers simply cut the markings they need, peel the backing off and apply to the plastic model surface.

FILM

This sheet of white trim flim comes in at .0023" when removed from the protective backing. It cuts easily with a clean line, with good adhesion. It was also easy to remove, but did not re-apply very well.

The material has good stretch to it, taking curves up to 90 degrees with ease.

The white was decently color-fast, although when applied over bright red plastic, a slight orange hue appears in photos.

CONCLUSIONS

This trim film could come in handy for a variety of uses; custom flight deck markings and funnel bands for IJN vessels are two quick uses that come to mind. If Hasegawa released this material in a black- well, painting boot tops could become a thing of the past!
